CAIRN ILLUSTRATED COMES TO LIFE
Finally, after all the hoopla, speculation and anticipation, the long-awaited
reference book Cairn Illustrated is here! Compiled, written and illustrated by the
Cairn artists, Cairn Illustrated is an end-result worth the wait and the toil it took
to bring it to fruition.
Countless hours were spent gathering the photos, planning the layouts and
preparing the drawings for this book. The artists painstakingly hand colored all of
the original sketches and the hundreds of photographs. Most of the artworks
created by the Cairn artists--over a thousand in all--are featured in the book. One
will never know how much time was expended grouping the pictures, refining and
alphabetizing the stories and categorizing the artworks into "families" and
"themes." And all the while both artists continued their daily routines of
sculpting, sculpting and more sculpting, in addition to their rigorous and
demanding personal appearance tours.
It's no wonder that the completion of this book took so long! Each time the artists
thought the book was nearly finished, they were confounded with what to do with
their newest artworks being offered to the public. Of course, these artworks
deserved to be included too. Given the artists' productivity, it seemed an endless
task. After all, how can you include everything when there is no end? But alas, an
end had to be determined and the book had to be finished.
And so it was and here it is! Cairn Illustrated features all of the stories and most
of the pictures of the artists' creations. This includes twenty years of work by
Tom Clark (over a thousand "distinct" personalities as he says) and approximately ten years of work (almost two hundred characters) by Tim Wolfe. The book also contains in depth biographies, enlightening articles and unique personal
observations from the artists themselves, commenting on their art, their philosophies and their lives.
Cairn Illustrated is a massive, marvelous reference source, containing 169 fact-filled pages, highlighted with hundreds of color photos and sketches. It is to be admired and enjoyed for what it is--a great representation of a lifetime of work. Consider this offering a "labor of love" from Cairn Studio--an anniversary present of sorts-- and a truly comprehensive compilation of 20 years of hard work and much love.
